Marc BraunSession Title: Procedural generation technology in Game developement

In this talk I will display the technology we have developed to procedurally generate a game world. I will start by explaining the philosophy behind our tech. Then I will talk about the various modules that are needed to create a world using a fully procedural, biome based approach. I will explain the modules in detail, how they are interconnected and how that information is used further down the creation toolchain.
